Community Reimagined.

"Seek the well-being of the city, for it is by seeking its well-being that you will find your well-being" – Jeremiah 29:7

Community Heartbeat

Loaded Brush Luminaries 2.0

Luminaries are local people assisting in the betterment of our city in a variety of ways – they illuminate, improve, and inspire our community.  The concept for our  evening is based on the Loaded Brush Art Classes offered at the 317 Studio & Gallery.  The co-owners of 317 will serve as instructors for our 20 community luminaries, who will each create a painting on-site at the event.  The subjects for the paintings are derived from the rich history and interesting locales of the neighborhood.  All paintings will be auctioned at the end of the night so that you can walk away with a unique piece of art by your favorite Rockford luminary.

Plus the evening will feature a fantastic jazz band, cash bar, “loaded” dishes from Wild Rhubarb, caricatures by Bruce Quast – all in the gracious setting of the Rockford Woman’s Club, a charming and historic gem of the JD neighborhood.   Tickets are $30 per person and are available at the door or at Questions?  Call 630-452-5234.
